Continuous laughter
5 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a very funny Vitagraph comedy in which Bunny and Flora Finch "cut all kinds of capers." The complications that occur, involving all the characters, including the doctor, are well handled and cause continuous laughter. At one time it looks like war, but the humor of the whole thing dawns on the belligerents and they conclude to abide by mediation. For a one reel this is chock full of meat. - The Moving Picture World, August 29, 1914
